NATURAL SUN CARE
Getting outside in the sun not only feels amazing, but it’s also vital to help us soak up vitamin D. This helps our body absorb calcium and build strong bones, helps regulate our immune system, and prevents other diseases. However, too much sun can be damaging for our skin and lead to skin cancers, especially with the strong UV rays here in Australia.
We are used to using sun protection, especially during the Spring and Summer months. However, on closer inspection of the ingredients in these every day lotions, ourselves and marine life are being negatively impacted, and it’s time to switch to smarter.
Ingredients in conventional sunscreens are mostly petroleum based, whose manufacturing is a major environmental pollutant. You will find synthetically produced chemical sun screen ingredients like oxybenzone, which can disrupt your hormone receptors and has been shown to impact on coral. Synthetic preservatives and fragrances are used, which again can affect your hormones over the long term. Retinyl palmitate has been linked to triggering skin damage, and possibly cancer.

MooGoo – SPF 15 Lip Balm
Once upon a time, on a dairy farm in Perth back in 2005, the MooGoo story began. The Head of the Herd (founder Craig Jones) noticed that his mum was using a white paste, intended for use on cows, to help manage a skin problem. The cream was formulated to help keep the skin on cow’s udders in good condition for milking, and although it worked, it was thick and hard to apply. As you can imagine, cow’s udders need to be kept soft and supple, not dry and cracked. No one likes an angry cow.
Since mum didn’t particularly like being lathered in a thick cream made for cows, Craig took on the task of reformulating it to be lighter and non-greasy to help mum out. The name “Udder Cream” was a bit crass for a lady, so they referred to it lovingly as Moo-Goo, (goo for the cows) and the name stuck. Starting a skin care company wasn’t the initial idea, but eventually friends and family found out about it, tried it and kept asking for more. But it didn’t stop there.
Since then MooGoo has grown to over 40 products to help with lots of different problems, from dealing with irritable skin and itchy scalps, to natural sun care products and a Baby Range for the little ones. Our ingredient philosophy remains the same: To make effective products using healthy ingredients, that we are comfortable using on ourselves and our loved ones.
Like all our Lip Balms, we made our SPF 15 Balm to be edible as well as moisturising and conditioning for the skin. We all want soft and healthy lips without having to eat petroleum jelly or UV Filters.
For our SPF 15 Lip Balm we simply added non-nano Zinc Oxide to our list of natural moisturising oils to make this one of the most natural SPF lip balms ever. We hope you and your lips enjoy!
